Welcome to the Essex Care Search Information Hub. Thank you for visiting.

Essex County Council (ECC), in partnership with Local Health Organisations, has implemented a web-based bed management system, Essex Care Search which will help to manage residential and nursing beds throughout Essex.

Care Home Providers enter their home and bed details and use the system to identify beds that are vacant. The system is being used by ECC and some Health Users to search for and book vacant beds for Adults requiring residential and nursing placements. The system was made available for the public to use in June 2021.

The system will provide benefits to ECC in terms of a more efficient system and improved market oversight. The benefits for providers include the ability to advertise their care home for free and help reduce the multiple phone calls received from ECC and Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) to find out if they have any vacant beds.

Please follow the link Essex Care Search Overview for an overview of the system.

Following the enrolment of IRN framework providers, we are now pleased to invite all non-IRN framework providers based in Essex to register to use Essex Care Search.
